Air Canada launches free Covid-19 insurance cover

Air Canada is matching rival WestJet by offering free Covid-19 insurance cover for international flight bookings.

It covers C$200,000 for Covid-19 related medical expenses and up to C$150 per person per day for quarantine costs.

It has teamed up with insurer Manulife for complementary cover on new bookings made in Canada until 31 October 2020.

It is valid for Canadian residents and all bookings must be round trip journeys.

"We know people have personal, family and business reasons to travel. To give them greater confidence we have engaged Manulife to offer all Canadian residents complimentary Covid-19 emergency medical and quarantine insurance," said Lucie Guillemette, Air Canada Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.

It covers all international destinations the airline is currently flying to.

Manulife says it is Canada's largest provider of travel insurance.
